    There is a new smoke effect from the tiger cave that is cool but i though the show had some problems. For one thing Kazoo tells the audience that the cave is not real! I don't think Walt would like cast members saying things in his park are fake! There are many other things in the show that i had problems with but i would like to hear other comments first.

    Do they still have the "Little Mermaid on DVD" joke? 'Cause it's not on DVD anymore and that annoyed me.

    It's not supposed to be a recreation... the five year old girl in pigtails carrying a cardboard Jafar fake is not meant to be real either. As its name implies, its a storytime of something that "really" did happen.

    I'm addicted to Disneyland. Disneyland hobbies are expensive.
    If I become a bum people are going to say "Don't give him money, he's just gonna use it on Disneyland."

    With all this talk of "off the shelf" and "on the back-burner" it seems the only thing that DCA is really missing is the kitchen sink!

    Pluse this is not quite the same as the storytime with the princesses. In the guide it is listed as a show! i don't think they should point out the fact that things are fake, just humor the kids a bit.

    It is tacky, thank you for pointing that out!
    I am so sick of these stupid "storytelling" things. They are so pointless!!
    Tom Sawyer Island even has a spot for it!! Let the kids read the books!!!!!!
    I do like the kind of humor the Aladdin storytelling presents, but that cn be accomplished at Jungle Cruise. They need to better utilize the space.

    Can't say I agree with ya there sorceress1986 (says that guy who's picked a Minstrel for his Avatar). Storytelling is a real folk art - and I think it's pretty cool that DL has found a way to add it to the adventure. Kids can read books at home -- but where can they have these experiences (O.K. - well there's summer camp, and the local storytellers clubs and so forth -- too bad none of our kids do that anymore [too busy with da Video Games and da Chat Rooms....oh, wait a minute....)

    Anyhow - if it helps you; just think about all those families wasting their time at the Storyteller hours while you are standing in line for Indy, again.

    Not to pick on ya sorceress just using this as an example:

    (climbs onto soapbox)
    Do any of you who dislike the storytelling have kids?
    I'm guessing not...(not to be rude just an assumption)
    why am I assuming this?
    because when we go we are in the parks for 5 days with 2 kids, and attractions like the Aladdin & Jasmine storytelling, the Princess storyelling, Buzz lightyear show, Fantasyland theater,and countless other story telling opertunities are wonderful ways for the kids to still participate in the park yet take a moment away from the chaos that oftain is happening.
    Crowds can be very overwhelming for children, waiting in line for hours is difficult for adults...almost impossable for kids. I think an important part of Disneyland is the small groups calm things for children. It adds some intamacy and magic.
    Not everything has to be some amazing ride. there is so much wonder and Magic in DL.

    I have a challenge for all of you who hate/dislike the storytelling....
    Go and sit through one, but don't watch the CM's and Charactors....watch the kids listening and paricipating, you will see a whole new level of magic that you may have missed or forgotten.

    and for the record if DL was all rides and no extra little touches of magic I wouldn't go, I could just go to sixflags for that,(and I hate sixflags) what seperates Disney is that it is for the whole family with thrills, magic moments, enchantment, and all

    That was beautiful, Tink.*sniff* Yes, the storytelling IS a nice break for the younguns.

    I was skeptical about seeing the Aladdin show the first time and found myself pleasantly surprised. It was interactive w/ the kids up front and chosen for parts (my boy got to hold the "combination huka/coffee maker" and received a special button for his participation-woo hoo!) and it was witty. Part script/part improv. and, like the DCA Aladdin show, used jokes about current headlines.
    I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
    That explains the trouble that I'm always in...

    I have kids - although they are adults now. I am around friends and family's kids. My wife is a storyteller. I do not go to Disneyland to sit and listen to storytellers. I go for entertainment. I want to experience the story, not have some castmember narrate it or attempt to be funny. (even the jungle cruise spiels get old after a while)

    I think you are absolutely wrong about the kids - I sat through one excruciating Buzz Lightyear show and the vast majority of the kids sat there either slack-jawed, or squirmy and wanting to go DO something. There was a very small minority who sat there and were actually engaged with the show. I will not be sorry to see the storytelling go the way of the Rocket Rods...

    The new "show" does not have as much of the whit as it use to. There is no improve and no current headlines :confused: why did they take these things out? Now the show seems dull and long. I miss the Disney refs it use to have. Why try to fix something that is fine the way it was? I feel these changes were a step in the wrong direction.
